Why Choose Wilton?
 
There are many advantages to sending your child to our nursery.
 
Our school is very small and friendly with small class sizes, and a high adult to pupil ratio. We pride ourselves on our personalised learning approach - we get to know our children very well, and teaching, learning and support is tailored to meet every child's individual needs.
 
Your child will be taught by an experienced and fully qualified primary school teacher, providing excellent standards of teaching. 
 
Your child will become familiar with school life and routines, which makes it easier for them to settle in when they transfer to full time school.
 
Our indoor and outdoor nursery areas are well equipped and maintained, offering a wide range of exciting and stimulating opportunities for play and learning.
 
Our facilities and environment are well maintained and we have excellent standards of safety.
 
We are situated in the village of Lazenby, convenient for the Wilton International site, and transport links to Redcar and Middlesbrough.
 
 
What do Ofsted say about our School?
 
Ofsted visited our school for a full inspection in January 2013 and again for a short inspection in February 2017.  Ofsted has judged Wilton as a Good school for 2 consecutive inspections.  Here's what they had to say about our Early Years provision:
 
"Children settle quickly into the Nursery class and respond very positively to the high levels of care and support and the wide range of exciting activities provided for them indoors and outside".
 
"Planned learning is closely tailored to (children's) individual needs.  This ensures that they make good progress from their starting points, particularly in developing early numeracy and reading skills."
